So. You've come here seeking how to use my Video Player project.
Usage guide here:
- Remix it.
- In your remixed project, press the little folder icon in the sprites pane. This will ask you for a file to make a sprite from. Choose a .gif file that you want to use. If you have a video instead of a animated gif, go to this video-to-gif converter to make it into one. Each frame of your gif will be converted into one costume of your sprite.
- IMPORTANT: Go to the Costumes tab of your new sprite and look at the very last costume number. Record this number down.
- Copy all the scripts in the original test video sprite over to your new sprite.
- EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: Replace every instance of the number 138 in the entire project (highlighted by comments) with the number you recorded. Otherwise, several scripts will fail.
- Change the video title at the top of the HUD sprite to whatever you want by double-clicking the text in the vector editor.
- In your new sprite, change the first block underneath the
when I receive [start v] block to
switch costume to [video-0 v] replacing "video-0" with the name of the first frame's costume of your sprite.
- There you go! You now can play your video to your heart's content. Space or mouse-click to pause or play, and drag the little pointer at the bottom to fast-forward or rewind.
